  • Support for multichannel audio
  • Higher resolution audio, yielding sampling rates up to 96 kHz
  • Improved decoding efficiency, requiring less processing power for decode
  • Up to 48 channels

Disadvantages

  • Not such popular as MP3
  • Not compatibile with all devices on the market

Components

  • MPEG-2 Standard Part 7
  • MPEG-4 Standard Part 4
